Work Hard, Rest Hard

Word Hard, Play Hard.  That’s how the phrase goes, right?  Well, that’s not how it went down at my house.  Kevin and I worked hard all week, and then we rested hard… or at least a lot harder than we usually do.

I probably should have taken a rest day on Friday, but I didn’t realize it until I was already at the gym.  I powered through a hard workout, and then I kept the workouts light over the weekend, a three-mile walk Saturday and again on Sunday.

Kevin, on the other hand, worked really hard at work.  The poor guy didn’t get home until 8:30 at night on Friday, and then he had to return to the office on Sunday.  Hmmm… I’m not too sure I like this new job of his.

Luckily we caught a break after Kevin returned from work Saturday.  We tried a new restaurant with another couple, and if you’re in the Charlotte area, I thoroughly recommend it.  It’s called Deejai Thai, and sadly I didn’t get a picture of my amazing panang curry.

On Sunday, we had great weather, so I enjoyed a little rest n’ sunshine.  Of course, I later got to work in the kitchen.  Sunday fun-day turned into Sunday prep-day.


At least part of my kitchen time paid off.  Mmmmm…. beeeeeef.


Not a bad weekend!  Even with a the rest I got, I think I could still use a few more hours this morning.  Who’s with me?

  • Did you work hard, play hard, or rest hard this weekend?

  2. I’ve been resting hard… stupid achy leg…. GRRR

  3. mmm yummy dinner 🙂 We have been going to my moms house for dinners all week haha.. I love it!

  4. I worked hard and rested hard. It is all about the balance, right?? 🙂

  5. I could definitely use a few more hours – or a couple more days 😉 I spent most of the weekend running errands, decorating, and cooking, so Saturday and Sunday kind of flew by without me even noticing it. Is it Friday yet?

    I think I did all three! I played on Friday night and Saturday afternoon, worked out twice Friday and once Saturday and went for a long walk Sunday – then rested for the rest of the day.
    Bummer about Kevin’s long work hours. I’m not a fan of weekend work at all. Looks like you guys still had a great weekend though!

    Glad you’re taking advantage of this amazing weather as well.

    I played…too hard, lol.

  8. My husband has to work late sometimes too, not a fan!
    I keep looking in the fridge knowing I need to do some food prepping, but just can’t bring myself to do it!

  9. I’m with ya! I had a relaxing weekend as well. Just the way I like it 😀

  10. Both! I feel ya’ on the working hard all week & then resting hard. Sunday was a “hard rest” day & I honestly didn’t move from the couch for 4 hours straight, it was bliss! Have a fab week 🙂

  11. Definitely work hard if you count clothes shopping… Which I do. It’s so exhausting and mentally draining!

    Your meal prep looks tasty. I could totally eat that everyday this week! 🙂

  12. After a very busy past few weeks/weekends I’m looking forward to resting this weekend 🙂

  13. I did all three this weekend 🙂

  14. I’m with you on “could have used a little more sleep”. But it was a nice weekend. Lots of doggie training and running errands for him. 🙂

  15. I did a combination of all three this weekend – Saturday was the hard & Sunday was the rest! 🙂
